The guys over at LostLettermen.com ranked the nation’s top 10 Most Iconic College Football Uniforms, and no one will be surprised to hear the Big Ten had quite the representation. One-third of the conference landed on the list, in fact, paced by Michigan, at No. 3.

Only No. 3, you say?! Well, the two schools in front of the Wolverines – No. 2 Alabama and No. 1 Notre Dame – do have highly iconic looks themselves. It’s a coin flip, really, when it comes to final few teams on this list.
The other three Big Ten teams included are Penn State (No. 4), Ohio State (No. 6) and Nebraska (No. 10).
This is a great list. All four Big Ten teams are worthy of inclusion in any uniform ranking, particularly one that ranks iconic looks.
The only gripe I have with this list is Texas being so low, at No. 7. Between the burnt orange, the classic and clean look, and one of the game’s best logos, the Longhorns ensemble is as iconic and recognizable as any.
